Default About KVM

Hi folks,


Host - Ubuntu 9.10 64bit
Virtualizer - KVM


I followed;
Virtualization With KVM On Ubuntu 9.10
http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualiza...on-ubuntu-9.10


to install this Virtual Machine. The steps worked without problem. But I have following points can't be resolved:-


1)
I can't find the option on vmbuilder for selecting the packages to install. (no GUI)

2)
If the OS to be installed is an iso image what command shall I run, especially Windows?

3)
I tried to run "rdesktop" to connect the VM without success. I have no idea what shall I replace for "abcd", e.g

$ rdesktop -a 16 -N 192.168.0.200:abcd

192.168.0.200 is the host ip address.

4)
Finally I install virt-manager. It works to connect the VM

Please help. TIA


B.R.

You can use http://packages.ubuntu.com/ to search for packages that you'd like to install.

Hi falko,

I'm interested to learn the full command line running vmbuilder to install the OS direct on its netinst image already download.

Thanks. I'm looking for the way running vmbuilder to install Windows either on its DVD installer or on its iso image already downloaded. I have no problem running virt-manger to install Windows and/or Linux OS on GUI

vmbuilder is for installing Ubuntu guests - you cannot use it for other distributions or even Windows.

It allows you to create Ubuntu guests without the need for a GUI or remote desktop connection.
